Disable popup window for automatic backups

Mercury User Mar 11, 2015 08:50PM UTC

When automatic backups are enabled, a window pops up and gains operating system focus to display backup process. When Burp is not the active Window, this can interrupt use of other applications. This is common for long-running scans.

Please change this behavior, to avoid stealing focus. For example, display the progress bar either inside an existing window or in the title bar of the existing main window.

We’ll look into this request, thanks. FYI, we are currently working on a replacement for the current state file mechanism so you won’t need to save state any more (manually or automatically) so this whole feature is going to be retired soon in favor of something much better.

The new mechanism indeed fixed the issue.
